"In the1960s, Wergo made a name for themselves as a contemporary music label thanks to a series of ground-breaking recordings entitled Studio Reihe Neuer Musik. Wergo is now offering these gems from their early years on CD for the first time. Karlheinz Stockhausen's Momente, written for soprano, four choral groups and thirteen instrumentalists, was not designed as a fixed work with a clearly defined beginning, formal structure, and ending. It is a composition of independent events with multiple meanings. Premiered in May 1962, the composition underwent some changes in the following years which led to several variants, with this CD presenting 'Version 1965.' Performed by Martina Arroyo (soprano), Aloys Kontarsky (organ), Alfons Kontarsky (organ), Kölner Rundfunkchor, Kölner Rundfunk-Sinfonie-Orchester, and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
